3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Pours a deep amber with a nice white head. Aroma is mild buy obvious hop flowers. Flavors a perfectly balanced between the pale malt that gives excellent body and sweetness - with the perfect amount of hops for a pale ale. Incredibly easy to drink and very refreshing. This would be a case buy if I had regular access.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Expecting more complex hops, so while there were some interesting elements in the flavor (little citrus, thick malt, mild bitter), I was a little disappointed. Almost no head at all out of the bottle. Drinkable but not a great pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Hazy amber colour with lasting off white head. Light grapefruit and tangerine aroma. A bit dirty and earthy. Freshness is ok even though the BBE date is 6/7/14. OK pale ale. Just a little dirty. Bitterness on the finish is moderate. OK but nothing jumping out at me as being outstanding but drinkable enough,

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (bottled 06/07/14)from GBBF. Pours a hazy orange gold - some floaties in there despite a careful pour. Slightly stale aroma - a bit cardboardy, woody, a little lemon. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. There’s light lemon, wood, stale bread, a little;e cardboard, light orange, a hint of grapefruit... It’s not actually as bad as that sounds and its got a decent dryness to it, but its not particularly tasty.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at GBBF thanks to Kenny. It pours hazy golden with a decent white head. The nose is soft, doughy, grainy, light creaminess and straw. The taste is bitter, tasty, doughy, grainy, grassy and mild spice with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Pretty basic.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours hazy almost cloudy, particles, very light golden with a small white head, some retention and lacing. very lightly toasted bready malts, fresh cereals, some fruitiness - peaches and apricots - and fairly present spiciness, either coming from hops or malts, or both, wheat acidity - lightly astringent notes, grass and bitter herbs, muted citrus, touch of cardboard. moderately low carbonation, light body - just a tad oily, assertive and dry grassy-citrusy-herbal-grassy finish. not an over-the-top apa, but a nice use of malts/hops, nice fruitiness and fresh cereals.
